Liz Cheney has made it clear:

She is against gay marriage.

Running for Senate in Wyoming, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney made this stance evident yesterday in order to shoot down chatter that – due to the open sexuality of her sister, Mary – she was a gay marriage advocate.

“I am strongly pro-life and I am not pro-gay marriage,” she said in a statement. “I believe the issue of marriage must be decided by the states, and by the people in the states, not by judges and not even by legislators, but by the people themselves.”


In 2009, Dick Cheney surprised many he came out as a gay marriage supporter.

Mary Cheney, meanwhile, married partner Heather Poe in Washington, D.C. last year.

Liz Cheney is challenging Mike Enzi for his Wyoming Senate seat. He also opposes same-sex marriage.
